Feudo Maccari Saia 2014
Wine AdvocateFrom the Noto area of southern Sicily, the 2014 Sicilia Saia is a pure expression of Nero d'Avola that reflects some of the characteristics of the limestone soils found in the area. There is a faint mineral vein that runs through this wine. It pulls together the various elements of ripe fruit and spice. Despite the opulence and the grandeur of the wine, it also shows an elegant side that comes in large part thanks to that mineral definition. This wine is exceptionally well balanced and beautiful in this classic vintage.
Wine SpectatorA harmonious, medium-bodied red that layers fine tannins with a creamy mix of crushed black cherry, dried marjoram, orange peel and ground anise flavors. A lasting mineral note marks the elegant finish. Nero d'Avola. Drink now through 2024. 5,000 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastThis Nero d'Avola opens with mature black-skinned berry, violet and leather aromas. The firm, juicy palate doles out ripe blackberry, dried cherry and mocha flavors while assertive tannins give it a firm, astringent finish. Drink 2018-2023.
